Steampunk Tank -
TYPE 1

The picture below shows the almost complete tank, the arms for the scrunt are still to be made. It will be supplied as a metal multiple part kit needing assembly. (MDF Base not included) We estimate the kit will retail for £18 GBP + Postage, however for this Kickstarter we will be offering it at the discount price of £15 GBP + postage £3.00 UK & £4.00 Overseas

UK ADD-ON £17 for each Steampunk Tank TYPE 1 (includes postage)

OUTSIDE UK ADD-ON £18 for each Steampunk Tank TYPE 1 (includes postage)

NOTE: You can also use your miniatures set choice to pick the Steam Tank Type 1, because the Steam Tank Type 1 counts as ONE Miniatures Set choice. However: Pledge Levels of less than £79  with a choice of choice of 4 sets or under,  please add top up postage (this is a heavy kit),  ADD £2 P&P (UK) or  +£3 P&P (Outside UK) This is in addition to postage already charged for those levels

Pledge levels of £79 or above, which offer picks of 5 sets or above, can just treat the Steampunk Tank (type 1) as a miniatures set choice with no top up postage necessary. (this is because I have already allowed for the order to go as a small parcel not a large letter.)

The Mystery Goodies Bag

Think of it as a pick and mix bag, it will contain all the miniatures featured here, including stretchgoal miniatures if they are reached. We will offer the contents to people to choose from in order of their pledge dates, so earlybirds, those who pledge first get first choice from the bag.

About The Rewards

The rewards we are offering at each pledge level is based on the price of a set of 5 miniatures retailing for £15 GBP each. The miniatures are cast in high quality metal, which may contain some lead, they are not toys and are not suitable for children. There are now also add-ons you can add to your pledge, check the price to add for each add-on as it will depend on your pledge level.

What's the Scale of our miniatures?

On average they measure 22 to 23mm from foot to eye level. They fit scale wise with existing Olleys Armies Miniatures scrunt ranges. If you intend to use them alongside other companies 28mm miniatures, they may not be compatible scale wise, so check the photo below to help you decide.

More about us and the project

Olleys Armies Miniatures already has a small but very supportive group of collectors, and we really hope that through this kickstarter we can give them more of what they want and maybe get a few new supporters.

To explain where the money will go and how we reached the figure for the goal we have set. I worked out that we would need, 4 master moulds, 5 production moulds, master castings to use for making the production moulds, sales castings, Bob's sculpting fee, postage and finally the kickstarter fee. We decided not to include some of the other sets Bob had already started sculpting, but instead offer them as stretchgoals, so we could keep the basic funding goal a little lower and hopefully more achievable. Apart from Bob's sculpting input, we also have great artwork done by our son James and I (Jackie) will be sorting and packing all the rewards, so it really is a family effort.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our project from Jackie, Bob & James

Risks and challenges

Regards risks, I have already made many of the sculpts for this project, so apart from any illness or injury preventing me from completing the remaining sculpts I don't foresee any problems. I will be using Griffin Moulds Ltd an experienced quality moulder and caster to provide castings of the sculpts, they have been responsible for my Olleys Armies miniatures castings for the last 8 years or more, so I know they are reliable and produce top quality metal castings. I have set a delivery date of February 2014, some sets may be ready to send out earlier than this and some may not be posted until February so if postage is for outside UK then it might not arrive until late in February or early March. Infact postage is the only other risk I can think of, we will use Royal Mail and keep proof of postage. Orders with a replacement value over £20 will be sent signed for or tracked with increased insurance. The cost of postage has also proved difficult to calculate exactly for each pledge level, we do not want to make money on the postage or lose either, so for each UK customers' reward we will decide whether 1st or 2nd class is appropriate depending on the postage allowance.
